The museum is aimed at sensitizing and inspiring the younger generation about the leadership, vision, and achievements of all Indian prime ministers, the press release added.

This museum is spread over an area of 15,600 square metres and represents a seamless blend of the old and the new, the museum integrates the erstwhile Teen Murti Bhawan designated as Block I with the newly constructed building designated as Block II.

The design of the museum building is inspired by the story of rising India, shaped and molded by the hands of its leaders. And the logo of the museum represents the hands of the people of India holding the Dharma Chakra symbolizing the nation and democracy

The design incorporates sustainable and energy conservation practices. It is noteworthy that no tree has been felled or transplanted during the course of work on the project, PMO said.

Information for the museum was collected through resources and repositories with institutions such as Prasar Bharati, Doordarshan, Films Division, Sansad TV, Ministry of Defence, and media houses (Indian and foreign), and foreign news agencies among others.

Appropriate use of archives, some personal items, gifts and memorabilia, speeches of prime ministers, and anecdotal representation of ideologies and different aspects of their lives have been reflected in a thematic format, the PMO said.

The museum has employed cutting-edge technology-based interfaces to encompass heterogeneity in content and frequent rotation of the display.

Holograms, virtual reality, augmented reality, multi-touch, multimedia, interactive kiosks, computerized kinetic sculptures, smartphone applications, interactive screens, and experiential installations enable the exhibition content to become highly interactive and engaging.

There are a total of 43 galleries. Starting from displays on freedom struggle and the framing of the Constitution, the museum goes on to tell the story of how India’s prime ministers navigated the nation through various challenges and ensured the all-round progress of the country, it said.
